Fibroma molle gravidarum

From Biology-Online Dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search



Skin tag or polyp forming on women during the gestation period, and typically disappears after pregnancy


Pregnant women are prone to forming skin tags or polyps due to increased hormone production. When pregnancy is over, certain pregnancy hormones revert to their normal level. And often this results in the disappearance of skin tags.

Polyps or skin tags are benign. Thus, they do not cause harm during pregnancy. However, they can be bothersome. Because of this, some pregnant women decide to have them removed by a specialist, often a dermatologist.
